Here is a crazy and wild idea. Today, we have a Saudi dictator who made his bed with Vladimir Putin, Iran, which is threatening the world with nuclear weapons and the State of Israel, and Putin menacing to invade more of Europe. Should we not consider options outside the box to solve all these problems at once? Like trade with the Mullahs for control of the Saudi Muslim Holy site of Mecca for a nuclear free Iran and the folding of Hezbollah to stop all threats against Israel? While the U.S. takes control of Saudi oil to relieve Europe of its dependence on Russian oil and gas?
Oh, by the way, we also get rid of Mohammad bin Salman as well. Three birds, one stone.
Yes, we know. All kinds of problems implementing it. International laws, flippant diplomats, and timid politicians. But not if we strike the deal directly with Iran. Let them do the dirty work while we turn a blind eye. If you read the last article the left-leaning The Guardian of London published, we should all sound the alarms.
In brief, we cannot let Europe become food for thought for Vladimir Putin, nor let Iran become a nuclear power. This elegant solution might hold the key to relieving all choking points in a diplomacy fraught with “if something can go wrong, something will go wrong”.
Just so you know. Iran would do anything to take control of Mecca and Medina. Those religious zealots would die to manage both cities.
Mecca for a nuclear free Iran and the US controls Saudi oil in the process to save Europe from Putin. So chic and so grand of an idea.
ONE MUSLIM GROUP OVER ANOTHER
Saudi Arabia has been in control of Mecca and Medina ever since the British deemed it right to flip both Holy sites from the Hashemites of Jordan into the hands of King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia. In other words, Saudi Arabia never had control of either. It’s not theirs to manage or claim supremacy over.
So, why not let the Shia of Iran take over this Saudi region while the US takes control of the Eastern Province in Saudi Arabia? Whether it’s the extremist Shia in Tehran or the extremist Sunnis in Riyadh, we are really trading one horse for another.
In one strategic move, we accomplish so much to relieve the world from the order Vladimir Putin is trying to impose on the US and Europe, which started by staking a beachhead in Syria. This step also includes the miniaturization of the likes of Mohammad bin Salman. Let his sorry ass govern over a desert with little resources to ever threaten us one day. Something that will happen when he becomes king.
Mecca for a nuclear free Iran and the US controls Saudi oil in the process to save Europe from Putin. So chic and so grand of an idea. Yes, the Sunni Muslim world may object. Jihadists would rise to fight the Iranians, but who is going to protest as long as it is a local matter.
Now time for real strategists in the U.S. Government to study all the angles. Unless President Joe Biden vetoes it on the grounds he cannot make up his mind.
